There is a new story on the Storybook Trail for November. The book is titled "Pumpkin Soup". The illustrations are very good. Three friends, a cat, a duck and squirrel cooperate to make the soup until they don't........ A story of friendship winning out over disagreements. Hopefully we'll still have a few good days to view the book. Enjoy!
Students will be "jumping" during PE class to raise funds for a school in Puerto Rico starting the week of October 30th. We have been in direct contact with a Principal of a school in Puerto Rico and the funds will go directly to that school. Pledge sheets are due back to the school on November 17th.
Click the link below to view photos from the Spook Parade. We certainly lucked out with the weather. Lots of parents, family and friends lined the driveway to view the parade. The teachers didn't want to miss out on the fun and coordinated their costumes. Kindergarten staff were jumbo glitter shakers; 1st grade teachers and staff including Mrs. Bryant were Emoji's; 2nd grade teachers were "Super Teachers"; 3rd grade teachers were "Cowgirls" with their horses; 4th grade teachers were jellyfish and Mrs. Saari was a scarecrow. Following the parade the students had classroom parties and then on to Trick or Treating! Another great celebration at HHES!
The STEAM Museum visited students at HHES. This was an interactive, hands-on learning experience for our students. STEAM is Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. There were several exhibits for the students to experience. There was Build an Arch; a 3D Printer; Friction Raceway; Humanoid Robot; Bike Generator and Programmable Robots. At Build an Arch the students used foam blocks to build a structure and then knock it down. At the Bike Generator students pedaled a bicycle to convert energy into electricity to light up the tower. There was also "Buzz Wire", a demonstration of how an electrical circuit works. They worked at a team to construct skyscrapers or bridges. The Music Maker allowed the students to create their own "sound". The representative for the event spoke to the students about the importance of Math and Science and his own experiences - he is an engineer and inventor who has several patents. His presentation was both informative and inspirational. There were many parent volunteers assisting with the exhibits and we want to thank them for their assistance. Both students and teachers enjoyed these exhibits and felt it was both educational and entertaining.
